      You're not alone. People love (and have the right) to spend money on things that look a certain way. Generally, stretching tires allows one to run a wider than otherwise optimal wheel while sitting...

      As long as it meets spec, it doesn't really matter if it's 5w30 or 5w40.

      I think mine is 35% all around. The limit in NC is I believe 32%, which taking into consideration that auto glass is about 2-3% tint anyways, that puts me at the total legal limit here.

      Easy way to find out. Remove aftermarket intake, install OEM intake, clear code(s), drive until code comes back (if it does). If code does not come back, you know what the issue is.

      I will say, my dealer (the two times they changed oil for free) always under filled my car by maybe half a liter. It wasn't enough to trigger a light or anything, but enough to piss me off. I think...

      If the car is new, this doesn't surprise me; I'd check oil level at least once a month to stay on top of things. I change mine ever 5k miles, and have never needed to add oil (39k miles on my car).

      I have always calculated MPG by hand. Even on my B5.5 Passat I found the display was a bit optimistic. For full disclosure, when getting 38MPG I'm driving from Raleigh, NC to Clifton, NJ and running...

      It's been a couple years since I last shopped cars (GLI beat out TDI for my wants/needs); what did the window sticker list for MPGs on the TDI (this question is really for anyone that can answer)? I...

      BFI is I think still the only local to RTP APR dealer. If you want to check out Unitronic, then Apex Tuning is your bet. Probably only about 15 minutes away from BFI. Both places are well known in...

      Just to be clear, VW didn't install "software that cheats emissions", but rather code was written to the ECM that allows it to perform differently under certain conditions/parameters that the EPA...

      It was hard for me to tell from that close angle, but are you sure the bars are in the correct location? Looks off to me, like maybe the bar needs to be swapped to the other side.

      With almost 39k miles and 2.5 years, I still don't have any creak or rattle complaints. There are some of those noises, but really minimal. I do get the low bass rattle in the rear deck, but it isn't...

      Same as OP here on my 2013.5 GLI. I'd say nothing to worry about.

      I've always let my cars idle until the RPMs come down. It could be a few to several seconds, but rarely more than a minute or so. Then I just drive sanely for the first few miles or so. There's no...

      That's horrible. I traded my 2004.5 Passat GLS with 125k miles for $4k in Sept 2013. Granted, it was loaded (leather, sunroof, CD, auto, wood trim, etc.) but that's a huge drop. Mine was extremely...

      I think if it looked less like a bowl of rice, it may be ok. But probably not. I think your free time would be better spent surfing online porn.

      Are you guys scrubbing the blades each time you wash your cars? I haven't had a chance to wash my car much the last few months, but I've always cleaned the blades each time I wash the car and I've...

      In this situation, a VCDS will be your best friend. I had a different issue (still solenoid) on my 04 B5.5 auto a few years ago and was able to narrow the issue down to I think the n90 solenoid. I...
